In brief: No and yes....

If you have a normal diet and eat a variety of foods, you probably do not need a multivitamin.
However, it probably won't hurt you either (other than your wallet). Atenolol and multivitamins mix fine. Atenolol, however, is not the best beta-blocker. Talk to your doctor about metoprolol or nebivolol if you must have a beta-blocker. If you haven't had a heart attack you should talk to your dr.

In brief: Yes

There are benefits to a multivitamin pill if you are not eating healthy balanced meals every day.
The ingredients of most multivitamin pills should not interact with atenolol (a beta blocker medication). However you should consult with your physician and review the ingredients of the particular multivitamin pill that you plan to take.
